Roger Federer and wife Mirka are looking out for new nannies during the tennis shutdown. According to the Swiss daily, BLICK, Federer’s two nannies, who help look after Myla, Charlene (both 10 years old) and Lenny and Leo (both 5 years old), have reportedly quit.

 

 

The two nannies are sisters and have accompanied the Federers on many trips over the years on the tennis circuit while Roger played tournaments. They were also seen in the stands at times as the children watched their father play.

With the tennis tour being shutdown and Federer recuperating from his knee surgery earlier this year, Roger and Mirka have been at home for the past few weeks and will continue to be at home in Switzerland until the current health crisis subsidies.

That should give them enough time to look out for new nannies. Federer has said that he and his family are now spending time at home in Lenzerheide, He urged all people in Switzerland to follow the guidelines and stay indoors and also said that Mirka and he were personally donating one million Swiss francs to the most vulnerable families in Switzerland.

Federer said in his message, “Our contribution is just a start. We hope that others will join in order to support even more families in need. Together we can overcome this crisis! Stay healthy!” 38 year old Federer is currently ranked No. 4 in the world. He has won 20 Grand Slam singles titles in his career – the most by any male tennis player in history.

Why is Roger Federer’s wife Mirka not attending matches?

Roger Federer’s wife Mirka has not been seen in the Swiss player’s box over the last few months. She last attended a match live at the Laver Cup in Geneva, then she did not travel with their four children to Shanghai and Mirka was not on the grounds at the Basel’s Swiss Indoors either.

Robert Federer, Roger’s father, clarified everything is okay. He also denied that Mirka is pregnant again for the third time. “She is doing perfectly fine, there is no reason to worry at all, she is just taking a bit of a time out, she also Needs to manage her own time.”

This year Roger went alone without his family at the French Open, which rarely happens in a Grand Slam. Meanwhile, MexTenis Director Raul Zurutuza spoke about people re-selling their tickets for the exhibition match between Federer and the German Alexander Zverev scheduled to take place later this month: “I accept criticism, I feel responsible but I cannot be responsible of a bad thing like the re-ticket sale that I cannot control.

It’s a problem that happens to everyone, to the Formula 1, NBA, among the others.” Asked if Federer may come to Mexico again after this year, Zurutuza replied: “I would be very happy to do something with him because we are sure he would love Mexico, we are pretty sure it will happen.”

Rafael Nadal is not only famous for his phenomenal gameplay but also for his noble work. The Spaniard runs a tennis academy that trains youngsters and makes future superstars.

 

 

The Academy also has a museum, called the ‘Rafa Nadal Museum’ where one can find all of Nadal’s trophies and most of his tennis valuables. Interestingly, Maria Sharapova too contributed a special gift from her side to the museum.

Five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova is also a part of the museum. She donated one of her autographed outfits that she wore during one of her matches to the museum.

“One year ago today Maria Sharapova retired from tennis! But we still remember her tennis every day at the Rafa Nadal museum,” tweeted the Rafa Nadal Academy’s official Twitter handle.

Rafael Nadal’s museum was surely trying to pay tribute to Maria Sharapova. It was exactly one year ago today when she took retirement from the sport.

Serena Williams also donated a special gift to the museum of Rafael Nadal
Apart from Rafa’s titles, the museum also has various valuables from legends like Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, and even Michael Jordon. In addition to these, tennis queen Serena Williams also gave a special gift to the museum recently.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion Williams donated her red Nike shoes to the museum. They also have Serena’s autograph which surely adds more charm to them.

The academy’s official Twitter handle also thanked Williams and expressed its gratitude. It was certainly a kind gesture from Williams.

The museum is quite a fascinating place for fans as they can see a lot of tennis treasures there. They hope that even more legends contribute to the museum in the near future.

Rafael Nadal coy over Tiger Woods help as injury ‘not under control’ at Australian Open

Published

Rafael Nadal has not revealed if he will seek advice from Tiger Woods on his back injury.

Rafael Nadal has refused to confirm if he has spoken to Tiger Woods regarding his back injury. Nadal is still suffering with the injury which forced him to withdraw from the ATP Cup matches against Alex de Minaur and Stefanos Tsitsipas last week. The Spaniard has made it through to the third round of the Australian Open though after beating Michael Mmoh in straight sets on Thursday.

 

 

After the win over Mmoh, Nadal was asked if he would be talking to Woods for advice on the issue.

But the 34-year-old was not giving anything away in his press conference.

 

“If I am talking to him, it’s something between him and me, and that’s it,” Nadal said.

“Sorry for that. I can’t say private conversations here.”

Nadal gave a worrying update on his condition, saying it is “not under control”.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion says he will continue to search for solutions to aid the issue.

“No, not under control, honestly,” he added. “No, I am going to keep doing the things that I can.

Nadal will face Brit Cameron Norrie in the third round on Saturday. Norrie overcame Roman Safiullin in four sets in the second round.

The South Africa-born star says he is looking forward to the challenge.

“Sweet. For someone like me, I don’t think about the draw but I saw yesterday he was next to me,” Norrie said when told he would face Nadal.

“I’ve never played him before so it will be a great match, a great experience. I can’t wait to show him what I’ve got.”

‘When there are Federer, Nadal, Djokovic with that determination…’, says expert

Published

on

Sometimes everything can change in a few hours. What seemed like a failed and unfortunate Australian campaign for world number one Novak Djokovic, has evolved over the shifts into a veritable manifestation of technical skills and mental strength by the Serbian, capable of annihilating Medvedev in the final and to interrupt the streak of consecutive victories of the Russian that had begun at the master thousand in Paris-Bercy with a caesura worthy of an executioner.

Yes, because the one in Melbourne was a tournament which, even before confirming Nole’s tennis superiority on those fields, rewarded and sublimated the resilience of the Serb, his mentality. In the period of his tennis resurrection, the Serb – who is about a year younger than Rafael Nadal and nearly six years younger than Roger Federer – benefited from their decline in performance to gnaw his own disadvantage in terms of Big Titles.

Freestar
To understand how much, just think that from July three years ago to today, the Spaniard has won seven tournaments (3 Majors and 3 Masters 1000) and the Davis Cup, while the Swiss has raised five cups to the sky (the most important of which is the Masters 1000 in Miami 2019, the other four titles are ATP 500) and grabbed three finals.

We will see how much these three legends of our sport will still want to win: however, their greatness has long since been immeasurable and no statistics will be able to enclose and order it. Pepe Imaz recently claimed that World No.

1 Novak Djokovic has done a lot of work on his inner self over the last few years, which has helped him tremendously on the professional front as well.

Imaz on the GOAT debate
“Novak Djokovic has spent years working on himself, his interior, understanding that when one is better inside, everything he does, he does it with more harmony, and (does it) better at the end of the day,” Pepe Imaz stated.

Pepe Imaz went on to explain that the work Novak Djokovic has done has helped him over the last year in particular, which has been a difficult one for the entire world. “In this difficult year that we have all lived, Novak Djokovic has become even more aware of the importance of what is the human being, the family and prioritizing things,” Imaz said.

“I think that has helped him. The calm that you get through the result, that does not depend on you, you can have it today and not tomorrow,” he went on. “The intrinsic calm is more solid and goes within you, that is the one you have to nurture.”

During the interview, Pepe Imaz also touched upon Novak Djokovic’s quest to break the record for most Grand Slams in men’s tennis. The Serb’s Australian Open title marked his 18th Major, taking him to within two of the all-time record which is jointly held by rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

“Novak Djokovic’s desire and goal at a professional and tennis level is to achieve the maximum possible Grand Slams,” Imaz said. “He has it in his sights, and he has a lot of determination. But when there are 3 people with that determination, it is not easy,” he added.

“Rafa and Novak are people with impressive mental strength. It will be nice to see what happens year after year.”
